    I'll be the first to say, I don't have a mac. So if this sounds idiotic/lunatic feel free to dismiss it.

    It relates to how the mac will handle a variety of operations that are expected to be in Leopard. From the hearsay of the "friend of a friend of mine", it was explained that OSX is supposed to match common patterns and sequences in files. What it's supposed to do is something similar to converting one file format to another, but it's supposed to be really durable.

    Apparently this thing is supposed to be able to take, for example, an audio file and convert it into plain text through known patterns. Then afterwards, convert that to something like HTML or what have you. From this, it should be able to extrapolate the pattern, and with completly different text produce a sound file similar in beat, tone, and voice.

    The other application I was told about was with applications. This "converter" can find all the similar patterns in an application, and if it has been exposed to enough it should technically be able to convert windows exe, linux formats, and other applications over to the mac.

    Does anyone have a link to any of this? As mentioned I'm on the end of a broken telephone and I want to know if I can get a mac that can run my windows stuff.

    I'm on this early because I can't sleep - and I wanna make myself tired so here goes my bit.

    Firstly, no idea what the hell you just said. Sorry.

    But as for your Mac running Windows apps - thats been possible for years.

    Virtual PC on PPC Macs

    Parallels and Bootcamp on Intel Macs now, as well as the possibility of .exe apps working under OS X in Leopard. Although another company has already developed this, and its gonna be released soon - I think.
